Being a service club, our focus is often on Fund Raising in support of our mission. But we also need to raise funds to support the club operations: paying insurance, PO Box, Travel expenses to various meetings, hosting an awards banquet and oficer installation. Our major focus for raising these funds is hostessing Parties -and- attending Parties (and paying for the opportunity). So while raising funds, we are having FUN (thus, FUN-raising) and growing closer bonds to one another. Our parties are open to others: cotact our President if you are interested in joining us!

2016-17 Party of Parties
Applegate Wine Tour
Wine Hopper wine tour through the Applegate Valley
On Friday, May 26th, at 11am, sixteen of us boarded our bus and headed out on a fabulous, fun, filling, and educational tour of the Alexander Valley. We visited Troon, Serra and Wooldridge Creek vineyards with tastings at all and a barrel room tour at Wooldridge Creek. We had appetizers at Troon, lunch and a very decadent chocolate desert (which went quite well with our red wine tastings) at Serra. Our tour guide, Jim, was a retired biology teacher who also had a small vineyard on his property and produced his own wine. So needless to say, he was an excellent and entertaining guide. We arrived back in Ashland at a little after 5pm after enjoying some wonderful wine and each other's company.

2015-16 Party of Parties
Walk on the Wild Side w/ Mel May 7 Let's go check out some spring wildflowers on an easy ramble through the woods. Real details are to come (and dependent on the weather day-of), but most likely we won't go more than three miles at a very leisurely pace. May 7 is our date; possible locales are RoxyAnn (east of Medford), the PCT (near Pilot Rock), Britt Woods (adjacent to the Britt Music Festival), or one of the trails in our own Ashland watershed. Again, details to come; a sign-up will go around in April. But if you'd like to get out to see some of our wonderful countryside, plus listen to me rattle on about the wildflowers ("OMG: ANOTHER CALYPSO ORCHID!!!"), set aside the morning of May 7! I promise NO big hills, but often the trails are rocky, and this year could be muddy.
Come one and all to see the amazing remodeling of Ashland’s oldest Church (it began Catholic) into a home by Cory Ross and husband, Greg.
Sunday, March 13th 2 - 4:30 pm 6th & C Street $15 each
Enjoy finger food: Savories and sweets, and flavored waters. See this gorgeous remodel. Plan to hear Cory and Greg tell us about the project and their future plans for the property around 3:00. We will have Cello music by Daniel Sperry while you tour and visit and eat!
Come as early as 2 or stay as late as 4:30. Bring your partner/spouse/friend/neighbor—and enjoy the opportunity to see this most interesting Ashland home. Sign up at club or by emailing Linda . Please pay in advance.
Hosts: Linda Anderson & Sara Brown
